OpenUK, which describes itself as an advocate of open data, open source, open hardware and open software, says it’s joined the European GAIA-X federated cloud project to represent the UK in the project’s future development Gaia-X is a European Union initiative to develop a regional cloud platform that will conform to Europe’s data sovereignty rules. Just quite how UK companies can expect to fit in with Europe in terms of cloud regulation and data sovereignty is unclear, as it’s in the final stages of negotiating its exit from the EU (just days away), but OpenUK says it recognises that post Brexit, both understanding GAIA-X and participating in the project will be potentially important for technology and cloud companies that want to do business with their counterparts in Europe.
